It’s fun to stay at the YWCA Summer Camp

Lisa Coleman

With less than two weeks into the summer holiday, a number of students are signing up for summer camps. The annual YWCA Summer Camp started today and there are spaces still available. Lisa Coleman of the YWCA says students have a wide number of activities to choose from.

“Well every year the YWCA holds an annual summer camp for children students of all ages and we go as high as nineteen sometimes we have a few adults. And the program ranges from educational to fun activities—we have reading, writing, creative writing, karate, swimming, arts and craft, cooking, cake and pastry. We also have for preschool kids. We also do for cosmetology but one of the new course that we start this year is social courtesies with Miss Birdie that did Miss Y where they learn etiquette—how to sit properly and present themselves properly with respect to table manners and lady-like things like that. It doesn’t have to be ladies cause it is for men as well—just that type of mannerism and that’s social grace.”

“So if a student wants to sign up or their parents want to get them involved, how do they go about registering?”

Lisa Coleman

“Oh it’s easy. We have the office. You could just walk in get a schedule and whatever you choose, we have the registration form. It’s five dollars registration fee and then you pay the one flat fee for the course. Most persons do two to three courses.”

Coleman says that a number of educator and university student volunteers will work with the participants.
